Cheese cakes by Alex

Small town charm and New York style cheese cake what a wonderful combination, Good quality fresh and delicious. This one was a marvelous surprise right here in small town USA. I must say that the cheese cakes are of the best quality ever.

Truthfully, not the greatest. Even though people rave about it I find it to be high in price $8.00 for a piece of cheese cake. Sorry Alex I must say my cheese cake is smoother.

The desserts are really good. I only tried two (strawberry red velvet cheesecake & banana nut muffins) personally. The coffee was also very good. I ate in the restaurant; however, I would not suggest dinning inside because of the close quarters. The atmosphere is good if you want to work on your laptop while having something to munch on while... More

Gave it a second chance and it was a bad idea! What are people thinking? You can get a better cheesecake anywhere else.

David, Its unfortunate that you feel this way about our store, we strive to provide a high quality product at a reasonable price. Our prices haven't increased in several years and our costs have. We aren't going to be competitive with a big box cheesecake prices, but we think ours is a good value for the quality ingredient you get.... More

We were fortunate to have their excellent pastries for breakfast at our hotel, The Biltmore but after dinner we stopped by fr a scoop of ice cream. The raspberry was wonderful.

Let me recommend something. Get a brownie and ask them to heat it up for you. ITS LIKE A CLOUD. IT MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH. As for the cheesecake, it's creamy goodness. There are a lot of flavors to choose. I got key lime pie and red velvet and both were delicious.

It's been a few months since our last visit to Alex's. It's still the best. No better cheesecake around. So many different flavors to choose from. Every one we have ever had is amazing.

Before your stomach turns at the combination of cheesecake and ice cream, realize that I am referring to two of their selections. The cheesecakes are fantastic. Alex's has the usual flavors and then the unique. Pumpkin cheesecake did not appeal to me until I tried Alex's --- I am a convert. The ice cream is from Homeland Creamery, a local... More
